Plant of the Week - Pentas!

This week's Plant of the Week is Pentas; a perennial shrub that has either red, white, or pink flowers which bloom all year round. It will grow anywhere between 50-80 cm and will do well in either full sun or part shade. In southern states they can look a bit ordinary during the winter months, but here in Brisbane it looks just as great in winter as it does in spring and summer, and I understand this red variety does particularly well in winter. This is a tough and unfussy plant that will thrive in many different soil types, but free draining is best. Give it a go today!
